Films for the Feminist Classroom

It can be challenging to identify the best films to work with in the classroom, especially when dealing with complex and sensitive issues.  There are many great resources out there to help find narrative, documentary, and short films that will help spark fruitful discussion and meaningful engagement with the subject matter.  I recently attended a conference presentation that highlighted just one such resource – the Films for the Feminist Classroom open-access web journal, a new joint effort from Signs: Journal of Women and Culture in Society and Rutger’s Women’s and Gender Studies Department.  Check out their insightful reviews and feature articles at their site:  http://www.signs.rutgers.edu/ffc_home.html
